The Master of Science in Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary program with an emphasis in genomics, proteomics and systems biology. The Bioinformatics program is built upon the research strengths and bioinformatics infrastructure at the Protein Information Resource (PIR) and Georgetown University. It also uniquely located in the nation’s capital, home to numerous federal agencies (NIH, NCI, FDA, NIST) and 2,000 biotechnology companies.

Students will take computer-lab courses and a mandatory bioinformatics internship in order to gain comprehensive experience in applying bioinformatics research, from basic molecular sequence analysis to advanced high- throughput omics data analysis.
